If you think that splitting is a solution, then it will be an author choice
whether it is more important the content (as in a book review, a manual, a
recipe, a white paper) or the presentation of it to the user (as in a
webmarketing page).
My definiton of "document" is page you can save on your desktop as MHTML,
you can print w/o loading it on a web browser, you can send as email
attachment: things that you cannot do with a web app page (it would make
much sense either)

(Actually, carefully using CSS you can get many effects without any JS)
